New Mexico Gym Challenge report
First off I would like to thank NMScizor for TOing and Hidden Treasures for hosting the turn out was small we brought 7 players (5 15+/1 11-14/1 10-) from Az and 4 (15+)from Team LA showed up. The tournament was 4 rounds and a cut to T-4 for 15+.
Same as B4
I'm sorry to say I don't know his name but I steam rolled his Team Magma Groudon deck he didn't get a prize and I felt bad for beating him.
TrEkIeV (Team LA) being as how both of us wanted to get into the T-4 We decided to ID and take the 1 point over the possible 0
As always seems to happen I got my wife (LiZKaT) this round and because I ID'ed the previous Round I had to play her. My Deck got off to a faster start and I slowly picked her apart (sorry babe)
After doing the math I realized that as long as I got 1 point I would make the T-4 so I talked to Paul (Team LA) who was undefeated and in 1st place and we decided to battle it out in the finals
T-4 2 out of 3 1 hour limit
3rd Paul A vs. 2nd TrEkIeV (both from Team LA)
Me vs. Paul (Team LA)
Paul was playing a Gardy/Magneton/Catty deck and got a great start and after losing 4 prizes and taking 1 I conceded the match to move on to the second game.
This time I got a good setup and he got a bad one and we traded prizes but in the end magneton with all that energy on the bench was too much to deal with I lost 2 prizes left
TrEkIeV won his match and Paul conceded to him in the finals
NMScizor for being a great guy and welcoming all the visiting players
Spookees for driving and keeping the supply of Gummies always full
Cs-God-Poke-Master for cheering me up after the match
LiZKaT for giving me another chance to win a trip
Hidden Treasures for hosting the event
The Air-conditioning in the back corner it was so hot I got sick
Me for getting sick and losing
My car for being so small
Coming down off the self induced sugar and caffeine high
Paul for beating me with my own Rare Candies
Thanx for reading

We had 4 rounds, no cut in the two lower age groups...15+ cut to the top 4.
